FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHY WAS NO WARRANTY CARD PACKAGED WITH MY LSI FIREARM?

Legacy Sports offers written warranties for Howa rifles.

All other products fall under the Magnuson-Moss Act. The Magnuson-Moss Act (Public Law 93-637) does not require any manufacturer or seller of a consumer product to give a written warranty. It does provide that if a written warranty is given, it must be designated as “limited” or “full” and sets minimum standards for a “full” warranty. Rather than attempt to comply with the provisions of the Magnuson-Moss Act and the regulations issued there under, LSI has elected not to provide a written warranty for these products.

Unless excluded in writing, certain implied (unwritten) warranties also arise under state law with respect to sales of consumer goods. Because the extent and interpretation and these implied warranties varies from state to state, LSI HEREWITH EXCLUDES ALL SUCH IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THOSE OF MERCHANTABILTY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE to those products other than Howa, Escort or Nikko Stirling.

LSI FURTHER EXCLUDES ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THE USE OF THESE PRODUCTS, SUCH AS LOSS OF USE OF PROPERTY, COMMERCIAL LOSS OR LOSS OF EARNINGS OR PROFITS.

Some states restrict the exclusion of implied warranties or of incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusion may not apply to you.

LSI wishes to nonetheless assure our customers of our continued interest in providing QUALITY PRODUCTS AND SERVICE to owners of LSI firearms.

HOWA RIFLE RECOMMENDED BREAK-IN PROCEDURE

Please do not sight-in and or group the rifle during the break-in procedure.

For the first ten shots we recommend using copper jacketed factory ammo. Clean the oil and powder residue out of the barrel before each shot using a commercial bore cleaner with an ammonia content. After firing each cartridge, use a good bore cleaner (one with ammonia) to remove fouling from the barrel using only a soaked patch. We do not recommend anything with an abrasive in it since you are trying to seal the barrel, not keep it agitated.

For the first ten rounds, clean and let the barrel cool between each round fired using a patch and rod only.

Following the initial ten shots, you then may shoot 2 rounds, cleaning between each pair of shots. This is simply insuring that the burnishing process has been completed. In theory, you are closing the pores of the barrel metal that have been opened and exposed due to the manufacturing process.

To keep the temperature cool in the barrel, wait at least 5 minutes between break-in shots. The barrel must remain cool during the break-in procedure. If the barrel is allowed to heat up during the break-in, it will impede the steel’s ability to develop a home registration point, or memory. It will have a tendency to make the barrel “walk” or “climb” when it heats up in the future. If you take a little time in the beginning and do it right, you will be much more pleased with the performance of your barrel in the future.
